    An author that sees the upload/insert media button here:
    suddenly sees NO upload/insert media button when they are made an s2Member level 2.

    Any idea why? Or how to fix?

    That's because s2member - although being a great plugin - is not designed for creating ADMIN members of any sort. All members are seen as front-end viewers only.

    It would be SOOOOPERDOOOOPER if the s2member roles could tie up with the native wp roles like
    s2member level 1 = contributor
    s2member level 2 = author etc...

    And I've read on the web that others would like the same.

    BUT in the meantime - sigh - I've had to install another plugin (is twenty plugins too many?) to fix the problem...

    Woooohooooo for the "Capability Manager" plugin!
    It means I can make s2member level 2 = author and give my authors their upload/insert media button back.

    (But s2member plugin people it would be nice to have this option as part of the package in future if at all possible.)
